What can we expect from Motorola’s newest smartphone release: the Motorola Moto G9 Plus? Well, think big! It really is the operative word here as the device will feature a huge 6.8-inch FHD+ screen, which is broken up by a punch-hole cut-out for the camera in the top left. The viewing experience on this Plus-size display promises to be cinematic and spectacular, which is good news for movie watchers and gamers.
Motorola Moto G9 Plus is just as big in other areas too. The phone has a Snapdragon 730G chipset paired with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Furthermore, it has a long-running 5,000 mAh battery that supports 30W fast charging.
Camera-wise, we’re looking at an excellent and wide-ranging setup. On the back, there’s a 64 MP main camera, plus 8 MP ultra-wide, 2 MP macro and 2 MP depth-sensing sensor. On the front, expect high-resolution results when you snap a selfie, thanks to the 16 MP camera.
In other departments, here’s what else to expect. A fingerprint scanner on the edge of the phone and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. This is indeed a small but welcome feature that is now missing on many other brands and models. Finally, the handset will run Android 10 instead of the newly-launched Android 11. In conjunction with the Snapdragon 730G chipset, this will allow for excellent speed and performance that won’t quite match the very top end models but will still be more than impressive for this big, bold phone. Please see Motorola’s NZ site for a list of detailed specs.
This Motorola smartphone currently retails at $499 inclusive of GST at PB Tech.
